Here comes Peter Cottontail!

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail…….well, not exactly.  Let’s just say Peter had an extreme makeover!!  Easter is quickly approaching and that means it’s time for lots of hand painting at Stella Leona.  I thought you might enjoy seeing how some of these beautiful chocolates are created.  Our most impressive painted chocolate is definitely our Easter Bunny Centerpiece.

He stands approximately 20 inches high and contains over 2 pounds of creamy milk chocolate.  This is an Easter dinner centerpiece like no other! 

Each bunny is meticulously hand painted and no two are exactly alike.  It takes an entire day to make just one.

We can’t share all our secrets about how we make these, but it is an understatement to say that there are many steps and the process is very labor intensive.  If we make any mistakes or attempt to rush the process in any way, the bunny will come out of the mold with chips or streaks in the color and be unusable.  Ultimately if we did everything right, he hops right out of the mold like something from The Gingerbread Man, looking brilliant and bright!

If you’d like to share our Easter Bunny Centerpiece at your Easter dinner, be sure to reserve yours now.  Due to the time involved in creating each of these, we only make enough to fill orders placed, but we’d love to make one for you!  It is truly a joy to create special gifts that show friends and family how much they are appreciated and valued. 

Be sure to stop in our shop or at Pettisville Meats next door to sign up to win one of these centerpieces.  One winner will be drawn on April 2nd and notified by email to pick up their centerpiece on Saturday, April 3rd.
